Finite Element Analysis of ASTM SA516 Grade 70 Condensate Receiving Tanks

condensate tank
We performed a finite element stress analysis on condensate receiving tanks – including the shells for external loads on the nozzles and to recommend design changes if necessary. The tanks were constructed of ASTM SA516 Grade 70 carbon steel and the nozzles were SA53 Grade B carbon steel pipe.

The allowable stresses used in both the WRC 107 evaluation and the finite element analyses were taken from the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code.
